on whether president obama or house speaker john boehner did a better job with the last one. president obama clearly has the upper hand. 53% approved the president's handling of the fiscal cliff negotiations. only 40% disapproved. for boehner, it's the reverse. only 30% approve. 56% of voters disapprove. meanwhile, congress is getting poll numbers that really nobody would want. americans have a higher opinion of root canals than of congress. the public also has a higher opinion of used car salesmen, head lice, cockroaches, traffic joms, and donald trump. however, congress did score a little better than telemarketers, communism and gonorrhea. it's kind of funny, but unfortunately speaker boehner pulls the strings of government. and today we learned that the united states government may reach the debt ceiling earlier than expected, possibly as soon as february 15th. speaker boehner even floated the idea of having monthly debt ceiling increases in a recent "wall street journal" article. as think progress points out, maybe he got the idea from grover norquist. >> they can give him debt ceiling i

the bypasser in chief? the white house is making it crystal clear that president obama could bypass congress and everything from the debt ceiling to gun control. for starters, vice-president biden saying today the president may impose gun control with an executive order. former speaker of the house, newt gingrich joins us, nice to see you, sir. >> good to be with you. i have to say, you have the most amazing program tonight that i can remember. >> greta: it's quite vast and varied let's say. >> remarkable. >> greta: don't want to miss any of it. and don't want to miss you either. tell me, the vice-president says the president may use an executive order for -- to impose gun control. your thoughts? >> well, the president can try to do almost anything if he wants to. the question is will he get away with it? the two natural stands are first, somebody will file a lawsuit, saying that it's illegal, and unconstitutional. but second, the house republicans have an opportunity when the continuing resolution comes up at the end of the march, to simply zero out the authority, to say no money shall be s
,000 and 15,000 there in support and training roles but the obama white house is now saying that they're talking about even lower numbers about 3,000 or 4,000. there's also talk of a zero option, bringing all u.s. troops home from afghanistan but some on the ground there say that could lead to an all-out civil war and taliban takeover. as for president karzai, he said he would like to see levels around 15,000 but today suggested numbers are less important than u.s. cooperation and supplying the them with tanks and drones. how much will it all cost? already the u.s. and allies pledged $16 billion in civilian aid and military ops on top of $642 billion the u.s. spent since 9/11 and 2,100 u.s. lives lost. let's start with kristen welker. what are you hearing came out of the meeting? >> reporter: a couple of headlines out of today's meeting. the withdrawal plans have been accelerated a bit. both announcing that u.s. troops handing over control to afghan forces this spring. that is a few months earlier than expected so that means that u.s. troops will shift their role in afghanistan. they
. michael, see you tomorrow. >> thank you. >>> developing at the white house, president obama makes the choice, you probably just saw it about 12 minutes ago. the treasury official. in the last hour, the president nominated the current white house chief of staff jack lew to replace timothy geithner. >> jack has my complete trust. i know i'm not alone in that. in the words of one former senator, having lew on your team is the equivalent of a coach of having the luxury of putting somebody at almost any position and knowing he will do well. >> joining me is john harwood, a lot of nice compliments for mr. lew. we do we anticipate any trouble? we have heard one or two republicans expressing unhappiness with the selection. >> reporter: well, i just got a tweet from his former spokesman at omb which said that jack lew before the full senate for confirmation five times. not a single no vote so far. i would not expect that to be the case this time but i don't think there's a serious threat to the nomination. jack lew is confident, self effacing. he is easy to get along with. yes, a tough neg
. but when you look at his experience before he came to the government with the obama white house, he was at citi and got $1 million salary and $1 million bonus. this irks not only conservatives who think obama's being hypocritical to nominate someone this kind of banking background after wagging his finger at the wealthy all year. but almost frustrates and infuriates the left because they would like to see someone more progressive in the treasury role. >> more progressive. but what about this? he was the chief operating officer of a proprietary trading operation of about $54 billion. now, that has been outlawed under dodd/frank. so once again, i see hypocrisy from team obama. >> you've already seen some senators on capitol hill such as chuck grassley of iowa raise questions about what jack lew did at citi. and there's been a huffington post investigation about how lew's unit within the company was tied to hedge fund groups dealing with the mortgage market that were making bets as the mortgage market collapsed. that's going to come under scrutiny when his nomination is looked over by
within our veteran population. we have been involved with the hundred days campaign to house veterans in 2012. president obama established a goal to end veteran's homelessness by 2015 which i think is doable and the department of housing and urban development came together to establish the hud slash veterans housing program which, is models after section eight and san francisco has received 500 of the vouchers to date. we have learned that our chronically homeless veterans were having a difficult time finding apartments in the private marked in fact many veterans have had vouchers issued in 1212 and so what we have here is a situation where we have a federal agency, the mayor's office and housing authority and human services agency who have focused to encourage private landlords to provide housing for these veteran and is a few months ago one of those landlords the owner of 2524 mission street came forward to offer to least his 33 stew apartments which are above the restaurant on joule which, is now the -- restaurant to least those apartments to veterans who have those vouchers and
this morning, who's in and who's out at the obama white house. find out why hilda solis is leaving and why jack lew's signature may soon be seen just about anywhere. i think i'm going to do something like that with my signature. >> you can't tell me you can find a letter in that. that's just a quick little doodle to get through. and more shuffling at the white house. then we'll turn to pro baseball's decision to nominate nobody to the hall of fame this year. it's stirring up a debate over three famous players who got in the middle of a performance enhancing drug scandal. >> my, my. >>> and just hours before the oscars nominations are announced, the people's choice awards were given out. wait until you see the breakup dress taylor swift was showing off last night. it is something to behold. >> between the race and her multiple relationships now, i think he's beginning to do that whole britney thing where she's shedding the whole good girl thing. >> the dress makes sense. it's a sort of in your face dress. >>> the flu outbreak has gotten so bad that the city of boston has declared a public emerge
-to-just add about mr. brennan, who's a fascinating figure the obama white house and really had been more powerful than any counterterrorism chief than i can ever remember. in fact, more powerful than most white house staffers that i could ever remember. i think this is going to be a tricky transition for a couple of reasons. the first is that mr. brennan has been deeply involved in the formulation of policy. and at the c.i.a., he is essentially supposed to be barred from being involved in policy, he's just supposed to give the intelligence and the analysis. the second is that mike mor rell who stood up with him in the white house at the east room today and i went over the the announcement it was quite touching to see how mr. morrell, who had been the other contender for job introduceed mr. brennan and said much about him. but i think if you ask people inside the agency, mr. morrell was very much, i think, their sort of home favorite because he had come up out of the analytic division and has been sort of a calming force in his time there. so it's not entirely clear to me that this is goi
meeting with afghan president hamid karzai in the white house, president obama made it clear the war is ending. the american war. and it's ending sooner than was previously planned. let's listen. >> let me say it as plainly as i can, starting this spring, our troops will have a different mission, training, advising, assisting afghan forces. make no mistake, our path is clear and we are moving forward. every day more afghans are stepping up and taking responsibility for their own security, and as they do, our troops will come home. and next year this long war will come to a responsible end. >> no doubt it's still a messy path and that end if afghanistan is ready to take over its own security. that's the question. what role will the taliban plal in the future of that country. and what role will the united states play after we end our combat mission? how many troops will we keep behind in afghanistan to keep that country secure if we can? jim moran is a democrat congressman from virginia and westmore is a retired army captain and author of "the other wes moore. i guess the question come

calendars. we have a date now for president obama's state of the union address. house speaker john boehner invited the president to address a joint session of congress on tuesday, february 12th, a date the white house has accepted. in his invitation boehner says the country has immense challenges and will require a willingness to seek common ground. that's a message boehner might want to pass on to his own party as well i'd say. we'll be right back. >>> welcome back to "hardball." as vice president biden wraps up his week of meetings with stakeholders in the gun debate, outlines of biden's task force proposals are beginning to take shape. universal background checks for gun purchasers, limits on ammunition, stronger mental health checks for gun buyers, and even a report in today's "washington post" that senator barbara boxer presented a plan to the vice president to make federal funds available for schools that do want to hire police officers. next it will be president obama's turn to act on the recommendations of biden's task force. is the time now for big change, including a reinstatemen

obama prepares to hold a news conference minutes from now live from the white house. good day. i am andrea mitchell live in washington where we are awaiting hamid karzai and president obama who will be addressing reporters in the east room following their meetings on the pace of the u.s. troop withdrawals. one big disagreement? the white house suggestion this week of a zero option, a withdrawal of all u.s. troops after 2014 leaving no residual force at all, but, first, the big domestic issue here at home. what to do about gun violence. the white house is pushing back hard on suggestions that they do not believe they can win a ban on assault weapons, and are focussing on other options. in fact, a senior administration official tells me within the hour that an assault weapons ban and background checks are both going to be in the final set of proposals that go to the president despite all reports to the controversy. the nra president who met with vice president biden yesterday is drawing a hard line on assault weapons. >> we don't think that a ban on so-called assault weapons, which ha
nomination, this time it appears the white house is not backing down. this time president obama has officially nominated chuck hagel to be secretary of defense as of today. interestingly, another potential nominee for a big high profile national security job for this white house who president obama reportedly initially wanted, but who also backed off from was this guy, john brennan. this was john brennan with president obama when president obama first took office. john brennan was reportedly president obama's choice to lead the cia after he first became president in his first term. john brennan had been a career cia figure. he had served as chief of staff to george tenet when george tenet under george bush developed their torture and secret prison program. john brennan's association with the torture and secret prison program of the george bush era of the cia is what sunk his chances for being picked as director of the cia at the start of the obama presidency. it's kind of weird. it's almost a foreign concept in american modern politics that the left might block something from happen
, of course, the official end of combat operations in afghanistan. earlier this week, the white house had signalled that president obama might be open to having zero troops in afghanistan after 2014, after the joint press conference yesterday. president obama said he hasn't worked out specifically how many troops will remain in afghanistan. that's an announcement he will make in coming months. hamid karzai had signalled that he really wanted a more robust american troop presence in afghanistan after 2014. yesterday, karzai wouldn't weigh in on the numbers. critics said if there are no forces or reduced force level in afghanistan, that could leave the country vulnerable and potentially to destabilize to the point that it would be involve into civil war. real concerns about how many troops will be in country this is significant, alex. the two countries have had a tel tense relationship. they had a show of unity in the sped up process. >> a show of unity. the new gun control measures facing the white house. the vice president meeting with representatives of the video game industry. will chan

, we learned today that president obama will nominate white house chief of staff jack lew as the new treasury secretary. and his signature will appear on every bill in our wallets. but when we looked up that signature, there it is. one person described it as a slinky that lost its spring. lew says if confirmed, he'll try to improve his penmanship. >>> and, what is your monopoly identity? do you go for the scottish dog, the hat, the thimble? today, monopoly announced they'll retire one of those tokens. and we, together, get to choose which one. so, you can vote online. the betting pros, by the way, say the wheelbarrow is the most likely to go. you can also vote for a new token, either a cat, a robot, a helicopter, a guitar or a diamond ring. i liked the wheelbarrow. oh well. if you see something out there for our "instant index," be sure to tweet it to me, @dianesawyer. >>> and, coming up next here, we saw her take home gold in london. so, why was missy franklin so nervous for a high school swim meet?

that happen. even the presence of president obama in the white house and his family races racial questions for some people. so that while we may be on the way some day to be post racial, i think it's fair to say we're not now. >> do you have a relationship with barack obama at all? >> not really, no. >> "and justice for all," by mary francis berry. it's her most recent book. professor here at the university of pennsylvania. former chairwoman of the u.s. commission on civil rights. here's a history of the u.s. commission on civil rights. marrymary francis berry on booktv on c-span2. >>> booktv is on facebook. like us to interact with booktv guests and viewers. watch videos and get up to date information on events. ..

president obama got his invite from house speaker john boehner. so now we can all mark our calendars. february 12th, that's when we'll get to see president obama's first state of the union of his second term. what does he want to happen in the second term? how does he plan to get it done? we already had a bit of a preview last week once the fight over the bush tax cuts deal was finished, the president gave a speech in which he laid out five issues he said he was ready to move on with the new congress. the first is ending the war in afghanistan. we found out today how the president plans to move forward on that plan with a surprise announcement that u.s. troops are going to have a mission change, that they'll be taking on a supporting role starting this spring. surprise. as for immigration reform, well, back in november, it was during his first press conference after being reelected that president obama said he would push comprehensive immigration reform, including a pathway to legal status for people without legal records and citizenship for the so-called dream act kids, the dreamers
on a friday night. that's coming up. >>> at the white house this week, president obama had to bid his official goodbye to the only treasury secretary he has ever known as president, tim geithner. and in so doing, president obama uttered a phrase that i have never heard before. i definitely never heard it in washington. but this saying is apparently common inside the u.s. department of the treasury, and it has now been liberated outside of its walls. >> there is an unofficial saying over at treasury -- no peacocks, no jerks, no whiners. that would be a good saying for all of washington. no peacocks, no jerks, no whiners. few embody that ideal better than tim geithner. >> tim geithner looks like he is about to explode with laughter listening to the president say that but the phrase is no peacocks, no jerks, no whiners. i mean jerks and whiners, we all get that. but the peacocks part here i think is a term of art. i don't think they mean peacocks in a generic way, i think they mean in a way that is specific to the treasury. here is what i mean. peacocks as birds are strutters, right? they puff th
are chuck hagel for secretary of defense and white house counterterrorism adviser john brennan for the director of c.i.a. as the president put t they did not seem too travel. >> obama: chuck hagel's leadership would be historic. he would be the first person of enlisted rank to serve as secretary of defense. one of the few secretaries who have been wounded in war and the first vietnam veteran to lead the department. in john brennan, the men and women of the c.i.a. will have the leadership of one of our nation's most skilled not to mention the smarts and strength that he claims comes from growing newspaper new jersey. >> john: that seemed like a nice chris christie shout out for john brennan. chuck hagel, according to our republican friends include opposition to the iraq war search and wanting diplomacy to threats in iran. he mentioned the jewish lobby and hints, i'm quoting a jewish problem. here are how three gap leaders g.o.p. leaders describe the nominee. >> he's wrong on the national issues that face our country today. >> this is an in your face for those who support israel.
and performance. >>> president obama sbre deuced white house chief of staff jack lew as his choice as treasury secretary. the president has been criticized for nominating another white man. we heard comments from new york congressman charlie rangel and new hampshire senator jeanne shaheen. >> it's embarrassing as hell and i kind of think there's no excuse when it's his second term. >> he has places where he could appoint women and i hope he'll take a look and do that. >> cbs news political director john dickerson is in washington. john, good morning. >> good morning, norah. >> all right, so is it all the president's men, as they say for president obama? >> well, right now it looks like it these last three appointments all white males, and this criticism is basically, look, mr. president, you won your election based on the votes of women and minorities so you should respect that in your naming of your cabinet picks. the white house pushes back and says he's only half way through the process, don't judge him so quickly, but if the president's being judged quickly on race and
house, said it was hard to get a deal because boehner had has to prove to his members -- obama has to be destroyed, crushed but john boehner says no, it's all about cutting spending. i don't have an evil bone in my body. bob, it's humiliation still the goal of the republicans or -- >> it is for some. but i don't think it ever was for boehner. i think he's more of a pragmatic moderate. and we'll see if the white house is going to realize it's much better to have a speaker boehner with that mindset than somebody from the tea party or the more extreme right which would just lay down and let the country burn. andrea: mike duffy, who has more leverage here? boehner weakened somewhat by 10 people peeling off in his own caucus and a symbolic and warning gesture or the president who has to face a very tough road? >> i don't want to go against chairman woodward. andrea: i would never go against chairman woodward. >> they have a slightly better hand because the republicans are divided. and not very much like. and the white house calculation, maybe politically, not substantively but political
karzai meets with president obama at the white house. but if past experience is any indicator, agreement may be hard to come by. in 2011, negotiations to leave american trainers in iraq broke down over the immunity question and no u.s. troops remain there. for more on the troop levels after 2014 we get two views: bing west fought in the vietnam war with the marines and served as assistant secretary of defense during the reagan administration. he's traveled frequently to afghanistan and authored eight books including "the wrong war: grit, strategy and the way out of afghanistan." and celeste ward gventer was a deputy assistant secretary of defense in 2006 and 2007. she also served as an advisor to u.s. political and military leaders in iraq. she's now at the university of texas in austin. and we thank you both for joining us. bing west, to you first, is it a good idea to even be considering going to zero troops after 2014? >> judy, i think it's nuts. i think it was a highly injudicious statement. our troops are still fighting there. our senior general just came in and offered three option
to be that transcendent administration. that brought us all together. that is why president obama earned the white house. because he said he was going the great uniter. remember that beautiful inauguration address? it was glorious where he said to conservatives, i want to listen to you especially when we disagree. okay. nice, beautiful. beautiful idea. and he was going meet with conservatives in congress once a week, that was a great idea two. he meet twice. twice, two times. three days after the beautiful speech, the conservatives in congress came to the white house and they had a meeting and eric can cantor, are techlated the conservative perspective on increasing taxes we shouldn't do that. and you know what obama said three days after i want to listen to you? he said eric, i won, you lost, i trump you on that. then about a week later, he said i want the folks who got us in to the mess to do less talking. and a lot more listening. you can talk a little bit. i want you to stay on the sidelines while we try to clean it up for you. unbelievable. gone with any notion of unifying the country of bringing u
has set up a tough, new political fight for the white house. a fight president obama signaled he's ready to have over the plain spoken vietnam veteran. >> willingness to speak his mind, even if it wasn't popular. even if it defied the conventional wisdom. that's exactly the spirit i want on my national security team. >> under fire for his past statements about israel and iran. hagel is now speaking out. told his hometown newspaper "lincoln journal star." the distersions about my record have been astounding. once voicing opposition to unilateral sanctions on iran, hagel says while he was "hanging out there in no man's land unable to respond to charges, falsehoods and indistortions, he admitted they took on a life of their own." he's arguing that there's "not one shred of evidence that i'm anti-israeli. nat one vote that matters that hurt israel." hagel defending his iran stance saying unilateral sanctions, "don't work and just isolate the united states." republican critics many who bitterly remember his split from the iraq war are focusing on iran and israel. >> he's an honorable

factor. president karzai and obama will meet at the white house to discuss troop levels and the wish list of military equipment karzai is bringing to washington next week. at the pentagon, jennifer griffin, fox news. >> riots getting out of control in northern ireland. protesters hurling bricks at people in belfast. the cops firing back with water cannons to fend them off. the violent protests in their third day. it started after a decision last month by the city council there to stop flying the british flag year around. such issues of symbolism frequently cause problems in northern ireland. catholics want to unite with the republic of ireland. six tour efforts killed in a snowmobile accident. it's our top story as we go around the world in 80 seconds. >> italy. the accident happening at night on an unlit ski slope in the northeast. officials say the snowmobile was pulling a sled pulling russian tour efforts when it slammed into a fence and it happened over into a ditch. investigators say speed is to blame but they are also looking into whether there was a mechanical malfunction. >>> aust

and in fact here's the image right now. this picture from the white house web site has been making obama and his senior advisers look like the 30-year reunion of the omega theta pi fraternity house. there's valerie jarrett right there. is this a hiccup in the advance of diversity and is it fair of republicans of all people to criticize president obama on a lack of diversity? >> pot calling the kettle white. >> let the man speak! >> john: rachel sklar yannis pappas and -- >> it is not fair that women have to wait to to be acknowledged when photos come out that are 100% white and women say hey just happened to let you know the ratio might be a bit off. people are like oh, what about this bean counting? i ran an organization so i may be familiar with this. it is a common phenomenon across all industries and you did expect a bit more from obama after 2012, after sort of the sea change in the electorate and particular emphasis on women that the cabinet would be a little bit more reflective of the electorate of the country. >> this panel is very white right now. i was expecting it to be more d
suspicious. >> president obama welcomes afghan president karzai to the white house this morning to discuss the future of the united states role in afghanistan. he made the rounds in washington yesterday attending a working dinner with secretary of state hillary clinton and he visited the pentagon where he was greeted by defense secretary panetta and other top military officials. sources say karzai arrived with a wish lit of military equipment including drones and helicopters and other hardware to ensure afghanistan security when nato forces leave at the end of next year. >> frigid out there when you are outside and you need the heater on in the car. >> what a way to wake up. >> what are we facing? >> colder temperatures this morning and colder tomorrow morning. outside i will show what you is going on, a little frost out there driving into work. my thermometer was down to 28 in san ramon valley. from the east bay hills, it is clear. live doppler 7 hd shows a lack of radar but there are a few high clouds right this. that is also helping to keep the temperatures up a little bit in the north
think they have moved beyond that. he is one of the most interesting characters in this white house. he has been at president obama's side. he has designed the white footprints strategy focusing on drones and special forces -- forces. he was involved in the bin laden raid. the big question in my mind is, will he be happy being back at the cia where he spent 25 years. he has been running the operation of all of the american intelligence services in recent years. >> a lot of people do not know who he is. thank theorem much -- thanks very much. among the challenges facing the next defense secretary is getting american combat troops home from afghanistan by 2014. american officials will discuss the trickier details. some reports the actual drawdown is already underway. >> they are cleaning up and clearing out. u.s. marines and their armored vehicles are leaving afghanistan behind and heading back to the states. 30,000 foreign troops left the country last year. this compound holds only a tiny fraction of what is to be returned. it is all going to be sent back home. >> we are not going to lea
house officials tell the "new york times" mr. obama and senate democrats will propose the changes in one comprehensive bill resisting efforts by some republicans to break the overhaul into smaller pieces. for more on these plans i want to bring in nbc's peter alexander what. are you hearing about the single swoop approach to passing immigration reform? >> that first as you noted was reported by the "new york times" this past week reporting to this big ambitious overhaul plan that would be one comprehensive package as opposed to splitting some of these issues up independently as some republicans have been pushing more, thinking it may be more digestible for their base back in their home districts. specifically when it comes to the issue of amnesty or legal status, that's been something heavily fought over. the president insists it's not amnesty. he said among the other elements that would exist in the proposals that are being considered right now, we're hearing from administration officials, are fines and back taxes for those. i think it's about 11 million undocumented workers, illegal im

obama was i did not want to see larry summers in the white house. [laughter] with hillary clinton, until the end of her campaign, there was not a sense of how she could bring her history to bear. it was very much a restoration ist campaign. he fell if you are going to get the clinton administration part 3. -- you felt as if you were going to get the clinton administration part 3. if you feel it was such a crisis and panic at that time as many say it was coming out of the calamitous bush administration into the tar, bringing in a team of rivals as obama talked about, all you had was larry summers and tim geithner. both of them have their control over the policies that led to the crisis. in my mind, that opened the door to the tea party. it opened the door to right-wing populism. people saw in this white house favoritism towards goldman sachs and the banks. the problem was the left populism has not emerged until now. for too long, many felt with the bomb in the white house that things would be sorted out. that is where movements become important. every administration in modern times has ha

on the precipice of the fiscal cliff. could president barack obama pull america back from the chasm? would house speaker boehner's doomsday machine be stopped in time? who really fathered nancy pelosi's love child? i'm going with eccentric billionaire lucius trent. you know he's also batman. all these questions will be answered but first let's get caught up on what this fiscal cliff is again. i know you've all been holed up on vacation the last three weeks with your wife, two children and life counseling. the fiscal cliff is the economic catastrophe that would occur with the simultaneous expiring of the bush tax cuts and deep across-the-board spending cuts that congress scheduled to kick in january 1 so congress couldn't negotiate a fiscal solution by january 1. confused? let me put it in terms of a 21st century analogy that can crystallize the point of it. pretend america is a successful railroad company. that has fallen on some hard fiscal times. there's an argument within the company about whether to make some changes to the dining car offering, maybe cut fares for less wealthy riders or on t
comforth the second amendment. in the presidential debate there was not a question to romney nor obama about gun control. i do think that the white house in some ways being a bully when it comes to -- they have the bully pulpit. if you have a meeting with a group like the nra getting millions of more members every week, and they walk in a meeting an they're distrustful on what will go to the room, and is strong. rather than say we have a meeting and it's fine. it basically felt it was a prop. >> kimberly: not an accurate statement. they didn't bring in nra on good faith. >> andrea: they are viewed favorably the nra. i think they felt they were going to circumvent them and pressure to bring them in. >> bob: we talked about this after newtown and we said there were a wide variety of things to be considered. mental health, guns, series of other things. the movie violence. they invited in everybody in those categories if mental health to movie violence to the nra. i think shouldn't we not at least give biden and his recommendations a chance to be heard? that was the most inappropriate comm
